TX Book Week 2017

05 October 2017

This week, TX was taken over by Book Week! From workshops with visiting illustrator and author Liz Million, to imaginative book character costumes, cuddly reading and teachers hiding behind books, this year’s Book Week celebration has been exhilarating!

To quote Dr Seuss, ‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go’. At the British International School, Ho Chi Minh City, we know that there are not many things as important as fostering a love of reading in our students. This is the aim of Book Week – to celebrate books, show children that books are most definitely fun and to continue to build positive experiences of reading for the children.

Book Week also provides our students with an opportunity to work with world-class authors. This year, we were lucky enough to be visited for two days by Liz Million - a fantastic children’s illustrator and author. Each year group worked with Liz from F1 to Year 6 and her workshops were closely linked to our current English learning in school. Liz had the children entertained from the moment they walked through the door and the work that was produced was outstanding – I’m sure that the children will remember their sessions with Liz for years to come. Liz also held a coffee morning with parents which was attended by many – thank you parents for coming and I hope you enjoyed the session.

On Tuesday, TX was filled with some weird and wonderful characters! Children, teachers, and even some parents came to school dressed as their favourite book character. The effort that was put in to the costumes was amazing and the character parade was a fantastic way to show off the imaginative outfits. Our judges had a hard time choosing but eventually managed to award one child from each year group with the top prize of a certificate and a book of their choice from the Fahasa book sale. Congratulations to Cammie, Vivi, Chanike, Ken, Sushi, Naho and Mei! Also – a big well done to our parents who came in costume for your fabulous efforts!

If that wasn’t enough, over the past week we have seen classes buddying up for cuddly reading (including marshmallows and hot chocolate!), purchases from the Fahasa book sale, our smallest children reading in pyjamas, children solving ‘Famous Five’ mysteries, Fox in Socks maths, teachers hiding behind books (see the display in the foyer), entries to the ‘Create and Illustrate’ competition, children making books and a strange beast in the office! If only every week could be this fun! I’m looking forward to next year already!
